What is the best way to identify if someone has Ptsd?
Who should i go see for a diagnosis?
If you are experiencing distress and think something psychological might be underlyinging it, you would need to see a mental health professional (a Psychologist, Psychiatrist, social worker, mental health counselor) for an accurate diagnosis. This would usually involve meeting with the mental health professional for an in-depth interview/discussion of your background, concerns, etc. and/or filling out questionnaires and other types of assessment measures. Once an accurate diagnosis is made, then you are in a better position to deal with what is going on.
I’d suggest seeing your primary care physician first and ask him/her for referrals to mental health professionals.
